In the EDIFY EDU project, we conducted video interviews related to EDI themes to get an overview of existing good practices and development areas. These interviews are not just useful examples but also important when building a training programme for managers.
Experiences from the interviews in Finland
In Finland, as well as in all EDIDY EDU project countries, we did five interviews. We looked for different views, such as wage equality, wage transparency and wage awareness, equal parenthood, equality and diversity in recruiting and anonymous recruiting. Interviews also offer information on training as well as useful material and research on EDI themes. Legislation, regulation and segregation were also covered in the interviews.
The five interviews accumulated almost two hours of video footage. The challenge was to crystallise the essential for wide use. As a result, we have five videos each with a duration of about 3 minutes. The release will take place on the channels of the EDIFY EDU project in April.
In Finland we warmly thank the following organisations for participating in these interviews
– Netlight Consulting
– Trade Union Pro
– The Centre for Occupational Safety
